2019, Emissions, Truck Show -

We attended the 2019 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville and wow, what a show it was this year. With over 1,000,000 Sq.-Ft. of show space, it was a challenge to see everything there. Since I’m the new guy, this was my first time there and I was overwhelmed. There was almost too much to see, from the major truck and powertrain manufacturers in the North Wing, to the hundreds of expertly modified and restored trucks in the show n’ shine, it was a lot to take in. With over 18,000 owner-operators in attendance, we were quite busy talking with our...
